Classification of minimal Frobenius hypermaps
Keywords:Frobenius hypermap, Frobenius group
In this paper, we give a classification of orientably regular hypermaps with an automorphism group that is a minimal Frobenius group. A Frobenius group G is called minimal if it has no nontrivial normal subgroup N such that G/N is a Frobenius group. An orientably regular hypermap H is called a Frobenius hypermap if Aut(H) acting on the hyperfaces is a Frobenius group. A minimal Frobenius hypermap is a Frobenius hypermap whose automorphism group is a minimal Frobenius group with cyclic point stabilizers. Every Frobenius hypermap covers a minimal Frobenius hypermap. The main theorem of this paper generalizes the main result of Breda D’Azevedo and Fernandes in 2011.
